The cleanliness and hygiene of dog and cat kennels at home
Dogs and cats bring joy and love into the home and like humans, they need to be looked after carefully. If nutrition is the first aspect to consider, cleaning the kennel should not be outdone. Our friends spend a good part of the day inside so we must guarantee them a healthy environment, free of elements capable of endangering their health and that of those around them.
We all know the curiosity that drives children to discover the "new" as they crawl and end up playing inside the dog's kennel or on the cat's pillow. From this simple example, we can perceive how important the hygiene management of a pet bed is within the domestic environment.
Therefore, periodic maintenance of the bed is a fundamental condition to guarantee the health of our furry friends and to do it correctly, we must avoid the use of improper or even harmful products, relying on natural detergents.
Here are the tips for cleaning the kennel of our pet friends.
How to clean indoor dog and cat kennels
The kennel must be washed on average at least once a week if the furry friend spends part of the time outside, or every two weeks if our friend (especially the cat) spends all his time at home. For long-haired specimens (both dogs and cats), it is advisable to comb them frequently, to avoid an accumulation of hair on the fabric of the kennel or cushion, which could remain trapped in the weft. For this reason, we recommend indoor kennels with removable cushions, which are easier to manage and wash. The products and methods for cleaning vary depending on the materials used to build the kennels.
